This season gave me a lot more cherries that I can probably use up fresh and so I used this Cherry Preserve recipe to store them up. It doesn't take much of your time to get these Cherry Preserves done.
4 Cup (64 tbs)
Wash cherries and remove stems fruit will have a better flavor if pits are not removed.
Combine sugar and water in large kettle and bring to a boil boil for 5 minutes.
Add fruit, bring to a boil again, and boil for 2 minutes rapidly.
Remove from stove and pour into mason jars immediately.
